How cosplayers are expected to have the skills of a hair stylist, a makeup artist, a dressmaker, an actor, a musician, and a dancer. What.

Back from Joann's! Picked up all the parts for the hair pieces for kimono!xxxHolic, about to go spray paint them now. Meanwhile Richter's axe is almost ready to be primed. I may even be able to start painting by tomorrow morning!

Stop giving us ideas! (Although the designs are quite pretty so it's probably now on our futures list, haha.)

It's a multi-skill hobby. Fortunately you don't need to have all of them or be an expert at all/any of them. Also, I never really witnessed the dancer/musician part except in occasional masquerade performances (though I dance ballet myself, but I've never had the chance to use it in cosplay except for having awesome balance in heels).

So all of a sudden, I just thought, "Wow wouldn't it be cool to do a kimono gijinka of Suicune?" And then I got this idea of an oiran inspired Suicune and there's now a design in my head.

%#@$.

In better news, got my dye. I'm probably going to test dye tonight on the spare fabric and then do the actual kimono dyeing tomorrow if the test ends up good. Bah, I'm nervous I'll screw it up. D:

Musician and dancer I've found no problems with unless maybe you want to add flair to a Vocaloid cosplay or are in a skit that requires it (same for acting, though I like to do it just around cons anyways)

This is part of the fun to me, though, is learning a lot of new skills I never had before to pull a costume together. It's interesting.

On a similar note, I'm entirely mindblown at how people cosplay Sakizo designs. (These)
Like...HOW?!! How are you so good to do that?!
It's on my dream list, but god, I can't imagine actually doing it right now. I honestly can't.

Oh my gosh, please do it! Being a sole gijinka cosplayer, that would absolutely fill my heart with rainbows!

My dad took me to a military surplus store to help me find something that resembles England's outfit -- but didn't find anything. I expected that; but it couldn't have hurt to look. Soo it looks like I may have to make it. BUT, I did find a hat I could use to cosplay Soviet!Russia, and got gloves for England. SCORE. I didn't actually get the hat but my dad is taking me back there since he's giving my sister a ride to work; and it's close. And getting fabric tomorrow, yess.
And I figured out who else who i'd like to cosplay -- Spain \=v=/. I said before that i'd cosplay the soccer ver. of him, but i'd also like to cosplay his military outfit.

*evil cackle*

Can't wait to see pics of xxxHolic hair goodies and Richter's axe-thingy!

Bought some more patterns for fun. Plus dyeing supplies and dye for my Luna fabric experiment. I'll be be testing a swatch tonight to see how it goes.

@FuntomKitten: Sakizou is my dream right now. Some of her work is far easier to make than others. Unfortunately my dream outfit is from the Romantic Jewels series and it will be a while before I can attempt to make it. Though, if I reach that point, I will probably be able to make outfits for other people as well, so...

I should probably get off my lazy behind and cut up another white T-shirt for my Jolteon pants soon. .-.

I sold my Elizabeth Bioshock cosplay, even though I hardly even had a chance to wear it. But at least the money will go first to buying me actual necessities. Like-- actual normal clothing that will fit.

Making progress with polishing my furisode dressing skills for Hotaru. (lol of course the right panel hem decided to go SPLAT when I was finally getting other details right.) Here's what the back looks like. Getting the obi to sit and stay high enough, especially in back, is still an issue, but hopefully I can get tips and help for that at Sakuracon's kimono workshop. Still, I'm determined to get this right on my own.

@Reily96 - HOLY CRAP DO IT. I know I would love to do a Suicune maiko if that dressing and wig/kanzashi/hikizuri/darari obi-making wouldn't absolutely kill me dead.
